State Pols Reject Gov. Cuomo's E-cigarette Liquid Tax Plan
Thanks to the new state budget, electronic cigarette users can puff away without the tax man taking a drag.
Despite an alarming surge in e-cigarette use by high school students, state lawmakers — at the urging of the GOP-controlled Senate — rejected Gov. Cuomo’s plan to tax the liquid used in the devices and tighten restrictions on their use, advocates charged Monday.
Cuomo’s proposals were mysteriously left out of the budget approved by the Senate and Assembly over the weekend.
